Description

This dataset contains georeferenced UAVSAR Level 2 (L2) interferometric products for Delta-X flight lines acquired during the spring (2021-03-27 to 2021-04-18) and fall (2021-09-03 to 2021-09-13) deployments. This dataset provides water-level change observations throughout wetlands of the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne Basins, in Southern Louisiana, USA, within the Mississippi River Delta (MRD), and it may be used to generate time series analysis. The data were collected by Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR), a polarimetric L-band synthetic aperture radar flown on the NASA Gulfstream-III (C20) aircraft as part of the Delta-X campaign. Water surface elevations were measured on multiple flights at 30-minute intervals. Data quality was assessed by comparing water elevation estimates with data from in situ water level gauges throughout the study area. The data include interferogram phase, interferogram amplitude, unwrapped interferogram phase, and coherence products in ENVI format.
